Georgantas: There Is No Food Security Problem in Greece

ATHENS – There will be no problem in Greece’s food security or supply chain due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, two countries that are the most important grain exporters in the world, Agricultural Development and Food Ministry’s officials as well as market representatives said in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) on Monday.

The increase in the price of grain since the beginning of the war “breaks” one record after another, with the Agricultural Development and Food Minister George Georgantas stating to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency that “the issue of food adequacy arose worldwide due to three factors: the energy crisis, the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the effects of the climate crisis,” factors that, as he said, create a significant problem in the international markets and in combination with the fear of a food problem, lead to soaring prices.

He underlined that “the problem of food adequacy in Greece does not exist now, nor will it exist in the near future, nor has there been a problem in the supply chain both in Greece and in EU countries” and added that our country, in cooperation with the Greek importers “has opened channels for replenishment, from other countries – EU but also third countries – of the quantities we have imported into common wheat and maize, from the countries currently at war.”

The president of the Association of Greek Traders of Cereals and By-Products, Spyros Grigoratos, also in statements to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency reassured that Russia’s war with Ukraine will not cause any food problem in our country.
